How to sort Qt combobox item after removing item from combobox?



  • Hi,

    I have a Comobox in my DialogWindow. I add 3 items in it.

        // TEST DATA LOAD
        ui->comboBoxSQLData->addItem("AAA");
        ui->comboBoxSQLData->addItem("BBB");
        ui->comboBoxSQLData->addItem("CCC");
        QCoreApplication::processEvents();
    

    I also have my connect(SIGNAL/SLOT) for combobox item changed

       // COMBOBOX SELECTION CHANGED
        QObject::connect(ui->comboBoxSQLData, SIGNAL(activated(int)), this, SLOT(handleSelectionChanged(int)));
    

    My combobox item changed function:

    void DialogWRITE_CARD::handleSelectionChanged(int index)
    {
        // Combobox item text changed
        if(ui->comboBoxSQLData->itemText(index) == "AAA")
        {
            ui->lineEditWrite->setText("AAA");   
        }
        else if(ui->comboBoxSQLData->itemText(index) == "BBB")
        {
            ui->lineEditWrite->setText("BBB);
        }
        else if(ui->comboBoxSQLData->itemText(index) == "CCC")
        {
            ui->lineEditWrite->setText("CCC");   
        }
    }
    

    Now I need to remove item first from combobox and than I need to sort item in combobox. How can I do that?

    In below function I can remove item from combobox but I dont know how to sort the item?

    void DialogWRITE_CARD::on_pushButtonKartYaz_clicked()
    {
        // Do something with text
        ………
    
        int cItem = ui->comboBoxSQLData->count();
    
        // Remove Current Combobox Index
        if(cItem != 0)
        {
            // Remove Current ComoboBox Item
            ui->comboBoxSQLData->removeItem(ui->comboBoxSQLData->currentIndex());
    
            // Now Sort the combo box after removing item
            ????????????????
        }
    }
    

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

    I haven't tested but you can use the sort function of the QComboBox's model.

    Note that handleSelectionChanged's implementation isn't really optimal. Why not connect comboBoxSQLData's activated(QString)signal on lineEditWrite's setText slot ?

    If you remove an element from a sorted list then the list is still sorted. So, do you really need to sort?
